|meta yml conforms to known spec||
META.yml does not conform to any recognised META.yml Spec.
Take a look at the META.yml Spec at http://module-build.sourceforge.net/META-spec-v1.4.html (for version 1.4) or http://search.cpan.org/perldoc?CPAN::Meta::Spec (for version 2), and change your META.yml accordingly.
The distribution hasn't got a Changelog (named something like m/^chang(es?|log)|history$/i. A Changelog helps people decide if they want to upgrade to a new version.
Add a Changelog (best named 'Changes') to the distribution. It should list at least major changes implemented in newer versions.
|no generated files||
This distribution has files/directories that should be generated at build time, not distributed by the author.
Remove the offending files/directories!
|no broken auto install||
This distribution uses an old version of Module::Install. Versions of Module::Install prior to 0.89 do not detect correcty that CPAN/CPANPLUS shell is used.
Upgrade the bundled version of Module::Install to at least 0.89, but preferably to the most current release. Alternatively, you can switch to another build system / installer that does not suffer from this problem. (ExtUtils::MakeMaker, Module::Build both of which have their own set of problems.)
This distribution does not 'use strict;' (or its equivalents) in all of its modules. Note that this is not about the actual strictness of the modules. It's bad if nobody can tell whether the modules are strictly written or not, without reading the source code of your favorite clever module that actually enforces strictness. In other words, it's bad if someone feels the need to add 'use strict' to your modules.
Add 'use strict' (or its equivalents) to all modules, or convince us that your favorite module is well-known enough and people can easily see the modules are strictly written.
|prereq matches use||
This distribution uses a module or a dist that's not listed as a prerequisite.
List all used modules in META.yml requires
|meta yml declares perl version||
This distribution does not declare the minimum perl version in META.yml.
This distribution is not required by another distribution by another author.
Convince / force / bribe another CPAN author to use this distribution.
These fails are not serious and don't affect your Kwalitee scores at all.
|meta yml has provides||
This distribution does not have a list of provided modules defined in META.yml.
|meta yml has repository resource||
This distribution does not have a link to a repository in META.yml.
|build prereq matches use||
This distribution uses a module or a dist in its test suite that's not listed as a build prerequisite.
